The New Patriotic Party (NPP) appears to be battle ready for the 2016 general elections, with the composition of a campaign team to be managed by the party’s former chairman, Peter Mac Manu.
The official unveiling of the team is expected to be done at the 15th Extraordinary Annual Delegates’ Conference of the party which takes place tomorrow at the Coronation Park, Sunyani, in the Brong Ahafo Region, under the theme ‘Arise for Change 2016’.
Apart from Mac Manu as the Campaign Manager, MP for Okere Dan Kwaku Botwe has been appointed the party’s Campaign Strategist while National Organiser John Boadu was selected as the Director of Operations; and he is to be supported by Sammy Awuku, National Youth Organiser; Otiko Djaba, Women’s Organiser; and Kamal Deen Abdulai, Nasara Coordinator.
Furthermore, former Campaign Manager Boakye Agyarko was appointed the Policy Advisor, with Ken Ofori-Atta as Director for Fundraising while Edward Boateng will serve as Director for Administration and Logistics.
The names were given out by the flagbearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, at the National Council meeting on Wednesday ahead of the Sunyani delegates’ conference tomorrow.
The various regional chairmen will also play active roles in the decentralisation of the campaign.
According to the NPP, all party organisers across the country are supposed to be part of the campaign operations, while all constituency executives will be part of their constituency campaign teams, just as regional executives will be part of the regional campaign teams.
It said each of those teams will also have specialised committees; and all Regional Chairmen will head the regional campaign teams while Constituency Chairmen will head the constituency campaign teams.
The detailed composition of the campaign team would be announced tomorrow at the delegates’ conference.
